Title: RCT: 2.02 Communication Systems, Course #33339

Abstract

This unit will present an overview of communication systems at LANL. Good communication skills are essential to an RCT. RCTs should develop an ability to communicate, using both verbal and nonverbal media. These skills will ensure that important information is transmitted to the proper individuals in a clear and concise manner.

  • The software is computer-based training with the following course objectives: to inform employees of their employer's requirements under the OSHA Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200); to instruct employees on the procedures for obtaining and using information on hazardous materials, including understanding labeling systems and understanding the material safety data sheet (MSDS) information; to provide information on 11 classes of chemicals, including their common uses, potential physical and health hazards, detection methods, and safety measures to follow. There are 14 lessons, ranging in length from 30 minutes to 1 (one) hour. Software Description: The software is written in the UNISONmore » language for use on an IBM PC or compatible machines using MS DOS operating system. It requires 378K of memory. Special requirements are an EGA graphics card and monitor. The program will not run on monochrome or CGA systems.« less
  • change is a computer program that interactively changes other programs. It allows one source text to move among many computers without proliferating versions for different compilers, precisions and like. Change also modifies makefiles, shell scripts and programs embedded in makefiles and shell scripts. This is a guide to the program`s use and a description of its operation.
  • Several evaluations were made by modified rhyme test (MRT) word lists transmitted through various simulations of the trapped-miner system being developed by the Federal Bureau of Mines. The tests were performed in a 'single blind' situation so that the evaluators would not be biased by knowing the characteristics of the system being simulated. A computer program was developed to provide a simulation of the electrical aspects of the communication system and to provide an evaluation by calculation of the articulation index (AI). The study indicates that communication through the presently proposed system will be somewhat unreliable at depths as greatmore » as 300 meters even with the system operating at maximum efficiency.« less
  • The design of pesticide and fertilizer containment facilities for lawn and golf course operations are similar to those designs used for most pesticide handling operations. In lawn care operations, service vehicles are filled from a centralized facility and the diluted mixtures are transported to residential and commercial sites where mixtures are applied to turfgrass areas. Golf course operations involve fewer vehicles and the volume and frequency of spray operations performed are much lower compared to lawn care operations. Rarely are spray mixtures used in golf course operations transported off-site. A golf course operation will involve spray applications to 100 tomore » 200 acres of plantings. Typically, the amount of spray activity conducted averages 3 to 5 days per month, whereas commercial lawn care companies may be providing applications to 10 to 200 acres daily. Because of the potential risk of cross contamination of spray equipment, operations associated with tree and shrub plantings should be segregated from those associated with herbicide and other materials considered toxic to ornamental plants.« less
